Hi
This is my first topic so am not too sure of procedure.

Anyway I have 'J/S Downloader.Agent' flash up on AVG antivirus but will not go to vault when I try.
I have run scans on Ad-aware 6, AVG and Spyware Begone. Only AVG recognises it but wont get rid of it.

I guess its a tracking device of some kind.

Not sure if topic has been brought up before, but could not find in the previous posts.

How can I get rid of the pesky thing?
regards
Billyblog

Did AVG provide a specific file name associated with this malware threat and if so, where is it located (full file path) at on your system?

Sometimes cleaning out your temp/temp Internet files will resolve this.

Please download ATF Cleaner by Atribune & save it to your desktop. alternate download link
  • Double-click ATF-Cleaner.exe to run the program.
  • Under Main "Select Files to Delete" choose: Select All.
  • Click the Empty Selected button.
  • If you use Firefox browser click Firefox at the top and choose: Select All
  • Click the Empty Selected button.
    If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
  • If you use Opera browser click Opera at the top and choose: Select All
  • Click the Empty Selected button.
    If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
  • Click Exit on the Main menu to close the program.
Note: On Vista, "Windows Temp" is disabled. To empty "Windows Temp" ATF-Cleaner must be "Run as an Administrator".
